  Have you concidered using the ip command from the iproute package to do
you aliases?  ip doesn't rely of the "magic" interfaces kernel hack as ifconfig
appears to.(IE, I havn't figured out how to get ifconfig to behave
  By properly I mean multiple IPs on one interface(like it really is).

    ip add dev eth0
    ip add dev eth0
